The world of dollhouse miniatures is a fascinating one; take for example this miniature, doll-appetite-appropriate crab platter, made from an actual tiny crab.
And dollhouses need not always be perfectionist versions of real life, but in miniature. In fact, it could be said there’s a dollhouse for every type of person, be they slob or masochist, as The Guardian explains:
“Maybe in their real house they have children running around, leaving rubbish everywhere, not tidying up after themselves. And with a doll’s house they can have it exactly as they want. If they want dirty dishes in the sink, that’s their decision.” Many steer clear of dolls, “because they feel that the house belongs to them,” she says, “and they don’t want strangers in there.” That said, she once heard of someone who had had her family made in miniature, and when her daughter broke her leg, the doll of the daughter had to have a broken leg too.
